Kenyan power consumers pay Ksh.354 million annually for unutilized power, Senate Energy Committee reveals

During a Senate Energy Committee hearing investigating high energy tariffs in the country, it was disclosed that Triumph Power, a power-generating company, is being paid Ksh.354 million annually by Kenya Power for power that is not consumed.

The contract between the two firms, which runs for another 12 years, indicates that Triumph should be paid whether the power being produced is utilized or not.

According to the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), Triumph charges almost double compared to other plants.

Triumph General Manager, Siva Shanka Kota, explained that although they produce enough power as per their capacity, Kenya Power only requests them to dispatch at will.
